The auditory organ or ear functions to help receive sounds and forward them to the brain to get information related to the source of the sound received by the ear. To help receive the sound source properly, healthy ear organs are needed, from the earlobe to the inner ear, and also the nervous system that helps respond to sound identification. Thus, if there are abnormalities in the ear canal to the middle third and the nervous system, hearing loss can occur.

1. deformity of the auricle
2. swelling of the ear canal
3. ear wax obstruction
4. ear infection
5. damage to the eardrum

Treatment will be given based on the cause, both with treatment to use hearing aids.
In connection with your question, there is a history of ear being possessed by insects and as a result, hearing loss may be caused by swelling in your ear canal. The existence of this swelling can cause the conduction of sound from the outside can not enter the ear optimally, causing hearing loss as you feel. This condition can also be accompanied by complaints of pain, itching, or until the discharge comes out. And in general this condition is not dangerous, because after the inflammation process improves, it is hoped that your hearing will recover.
However, all of this needs to be ascertained directly by examination by an ENT doctor as described above. So the doctor can plan the treatments and treatments needed. If the insect is still alive in the ear canal, the doctor can immediately take the insect to prevent injury and swelling that is more disruptive.
